latheef, 07 Jan 2015how can me update os of my s3 mini through wifijust open and connect to the wifi and the phone will tell you automaticly after some times if there are updates to install or go to settings, about device, software update.
there are so many complains about this phone regarding battery performance atc but the fact is you get what you buy. this phone has superamoled display same as many advance galaxy, it has dual core and 1 GB ram. technically is overloaded as it is which consume the battery in normal usage. my opinion is don't use so much app in this phone as the other advance galaxy's only the basic ones and especially not big games. i have been use this phone 2 years now and it works great, i have replace the battery only once and so far it works normally. also i would suggest to check the market for other phones since this model is getting old.

it's the best phone in best price with good speed.
I love this phone
I have had two different phones of this same model and both times it has failed me. The reason I bought it a second time was for all the good things with the phone.
I am now sure that there is something wrong with the model and not only with the two phones I had. A thing that already should be a warning is that Samsungs assuruance for the battery only lasts 6 months. And not long after 6 months my phone has started to fail me. Both times. The phone only works when charging and not always then either. If I don't have it connected with a charger it immidiately dies. If it doesn't die immidiately, it can just die spontanuosly.
Otherwise it's a great phone. But please don't buy it the batteri problems aren't worth it.
the apps are not plenty, i cant even download live wallpapers, the games are seriously slow, i regret buying this phone
the speaker isnt working properly, i can barely hear my phone ringing and i ve never used it to play loud music. this phone has massive problems with network. i have to restart it if i want to use the stupid phone. go buy a pigeon instead.

Worst mobile ever I had! Very slow while on games, okay on films, battery is worst of all I had to replaced new battery 3 times as it will be flat in 2-3hrs if only on games and leave it through night will flat battery. I rated it 2 of 10. Time for me to get N6 or Moto X 2014!

This is a limitation of many versions of Android, that widgets cannot run from SD card.
Nice phone, however need to re-start every second day. Very frustrating as you miss messages and calls
